December is almost here...
Posted On 11/30/2019 13:51:31 by yourchoice

If you are not familiar with our "neck of the woods" (as some would refer our location), I'm wondering if you have any idea why I took this picture yesterday...? There is one clue in the photo!

Can you believe it... December arrives tomorrow! Complaining doesn't help anyway, so on we go!

Yesterday was my favorite type of winter day... a beautiful "blue and white" day! The sky was clear blue (not a cloud to be seen) and the landscape was covered with a white blanket of snow. We could see deer tracks across our yard when we got up in the morning, the sun made everything sparkle, and hubby said, "Let's take a trip to town; at least to get a coffee and a box of TimBits." It was -17*F but no wind, our winter gear was in the duffel bag in the back, and my cell phone was working! Off we went... and we are glad we did! The mountains in the distance were gorgeous, the roads were bare, and the traffic was OK. I guessed that there were a lot of people at the shopping malls because of Black Friday instead of the roads leading to the mountains.

So, do you know why I took the photo from the highway? No, it wasn't a massive fire of some buildings. The location is Canada Olympic Park (built for the 1988 Winter Olympics), and the snow machines were at the max, making new snow for the family skiers on the weekend . Apparently the blanket that was provided by Nature wasn't enough!

Sigh! I even have "winter" on my profile page, hopefully to create a few smiles instead of sad faces!

Thanks, Shirley, for dropping by! When it comes to the 'weather', "it is... what it is!"

Great blog about where you live Mona!  As you might know I have the same type of weather here in Minnesota!  Lately though we have been getting dumped on by two serious snow storms that hit us this week!  Thursday was the only good travel day for us so I was able to travel to my brother's house who lives a good hour away!  I even picked up one of my daughters and boyfriend in another town before we got there!  So far we have had at least 15 inches of snow where my location is in Southern Minnesota!  So I can't imagine anyone hooking up the snow machines to make more?...lol  Thanks for the picture and good read!

Wow you sure have some cold weather. It hasn't happened here yet. I figure later in the month. For sure in January. I love those days too. Nothing more pretty than a clear blue sky with the sun reflecting off a blanket of snow.

It is so nice to hear from someone who also likes a "blue and white" day! Its crisp, its clean, and it is beautiful.

We do have a respite from the cold... and sometimes quite frequently. It is called a "Chinook"... warm winds that come over the mountains. It can be such a welcomed change... the snow disappears but there is no water running... it just evaporates! The rule at home was... "I don't care how warm you think it is, if there is snow on the ground, KEEP YOUR COAT ON!" Many people who don't know about the rule will likely come down with a bad cold.
